Kathy Hochul pleads $1 billion to improve New Yorker’s mental health – But not everyone is buying it
New York Governor Kathy Hochul recently pleaded to invest $1 billion to improve the mental health of those living in New Yorker state. Undoubtedly, mental health issues have seemingly ballooned in recent years, and this isn’t just a problem in New York either. Hochul first made this comment on her Twitter account where it gained 170 replies.
Many of these used the platform to criticize her for issues similar to mental health. Specifically, her Tweet read: ‘This is staggering. To do right by everyone who is struggling with their mental health, we must do better. It’s on all of us to end this crisis. That’s why we’ve invested a historic $1 billion to help New Yorkers access the mental health care they need.’
Replying to this, one user named Tom Lynch said: “You’re blowing smoke again when you’re really attempting to give the money to a failing health service and insurance companies while 700,000 homeless veterans are in the streets. So give a billion to investors and not one penny to our heroes you should run out of your office forever.”
Elsewhere, another user claimed: “Just think about the 500k former residents of NYS who could not take you or your failed policies who were driven so batty they packed up and left for greener pastures since you became Gov.”
While Hochul’s heart may be in the right place, it seems that there is a large contingent who aren’t happy with the way she has handled some things.
